Exhibition: 29 January – 14 March 2010
Preview: Thursday 28 January, 6.30-8.30PM
Michael Landy, one of the most acclaimed and respected British artists of his generation, transforms the South London Gallery into Art Bin, a container for the disposal of works of art. Over the course of the six-week exhibition the enormous 600m³ bin will gradually fill up as people discard their art works in it, ultimately creating, in Michael Landy’s words, “a monument to creative failure”.
HOW TO APPLY
From 7 December 2009 anyone can apply to dispose of art works via a dedicated website at www.art-bin.co.uk Deliveries will be taken at the SLG from 7 December 2009 by prior arrangement, and from 29 January – 14 March 2010 works can be brought to the South London Gallery to be disposed of in Art Bin from Tuesday to Sunday, 12-6pm. Please note that for access purposes the gallery entrance measures 210 x 122 cm. Michael Landy or his representative will decide which works go into Art Bin and not all works will be accepted.

Hi Michael,seeing as your ideas seem to run in parallel with Idiosynchronism perhaps you'll consider submitting work to the Zaotek Quinquennial scheduled for April 6th 2011. It will be announced by the end of January on www.niccosta.com
